To Thamud We sent their brother Salih. He said, "Serve none but God." But they divided themselves into two factions contending with one another. (45) He said: O my people! why do you seek to hasten on the evil before the good? Why do you not ask forgiveness of Allah so that you may be dealt with mercifully? (46) They said, "We have an ill omen about you and your followers." Salih replied, God has made your ill fortune await you. You are a people on trial." (47) And there were in the city nine family heads causing corruption in the land and not amending [its affairs]. (48) They said: swear by God one to another that we shall surely fall upon him and his household by night and thereafter we shall surely say unto his heir; we witnessed not the destruction of his household, and verily we are truthtellers. (49) So they plotted a plot: and We plotted a plot, while they perceived not. (50) Then look how was the outcome of their plan - that We destroyed them and their people, all. (51) Those are their empty houses which We ruined because of their injustice. In this there is evidence (of the truth) for the people of knowledge. (52) seeing that We saved those who had attained to faith and were conscious of Us, (53) And (remember) Lout (Lot)! When he said to his people. Do you commit Al-Fahishah (evil, great sin, every kind of unlawful sexual intercourse, sodomy, etc.) while you see (one another doing evil without any screen, etc.)?" (54) What, do you approach men lustfully instead of women? No, you are a people that are ignorant.' (55) ۞ Then there was no answer of his people save that they said: drive forth the family of Lut from your City, verily they are a people who would be pure! (56) So We delivered him and his family, except his wife; We decreed she should be of those that tarried. (57) We sent to them a terrible rainstorm. How horrible was the rain for the people who had already received warning. (58)
